Ringo Starr shot to fame as a member of iconic pop group The Beatles, but Ringo has also been creating paintings for many years. Starting out using acrylics and oils, it was in the late 1990s that Ringo decided to start creating art digitally, on his computer. “I love modern media, it is the way I do my art now,” Starr said. After his first exhibition of paintings in 2005 entitled My Faces, Ringo has continued to evolve and create new and different artworks. Compared often to Andy Warhol and Keith Haring, Ringo’s “pop art” has captured the feel and spirit of the colourful, modern age.
Ringo is collected worldwide and has had exhibitions of his art in Europe, South America, Australia, and the United States. He designed a painting for the Knot For Violence campaign that sold out in one day, and another of his paintings was used for the Hard Rock Hotels Signature Series t-shirt collection.
